896 Feedback

I've been using build 896 for a few days now, and overall I'm impressed.
However, there are a few points I'd like to feedback:

1) Editor error reporting seems much slower than the 3.0.5 version I'm used
to, I even tried setting the autoreparse delay down to 50 ms and turning off
the nonessential warnings but it didn't help.

2) When I Make Project, Aurora fails to recognise that I haven't changed any
files. Unlike Ariadna, it says Compilation completed successfully.

3) Rebuild project deletes all my RMI stubs. Again we cry for rmic
integration.

4) CVS Integration still isn't as good as in 3.0.5. Progress on this seems
to have slowed somewhat. Missing are the hide unknown/missing/up-to-date
view (which would be best integrated into the Project/Source view). The
current Commit dialog is a poor imitation, and when will it become part of
the dockable CVS window? Commit project finds nothing to commit, while
Commit on its own does. Last but not least, A CVS Checkout should NOT erase
all your changes, but merge like CVS update (thank heavens for local VCS
history for that one!)

Apart from that its wonderful, especially HotSwap!

We'll speed it up a bit later.

Yes, you are right we'll fix that.1

See Project Properties | Compiler | Clear output directory on rebuild.

We are working on that.

Could you provide any more details?

But why? If you want to merge your changes use Update command!

If I select Commit Project I get a dialog saying "Noting was found to
Commit", whereas if I select "Comit..." I get the Commit Directory Dialog. I
would recommend dropping the Commit Project and Update Project options as
they seem superfluous.

I don't know why, but thats the way CVS checkout on the command-line works,
and you wouldn't want to upset all those seasoned CVS users would you?

Ooer, does it really? Thank god I never fell foul of that! Well I agree
with Colin on this one, the semantics used in IDEA should be equivalent to
CVS, and they're not here as "cvs checkout" doesn't overwrite your local
files but merges. I'd suggest calling it "Rollback Project" instead.

Seems you have a problem in your setup. I'd check the paths in your
project - I had this the other day and my source paths were wrong. Commit
Project and Update Project aren't superfluous - they show the dialog you see
for a folder but for the whole project, sort of like what the old cvs view
showed.

Have you opened in Aurora a project that was created with IDEA 3.0.5?

Hmmm, I've fiddled with the project settings and still I can't get the
Commit Project dialog to show.
My project has Content C:\Projects\MyProject, with a source folder of src
below that.
As I would expect, in the project view the content and src folders are
brown, and the package hierarchy com.... is black.

Any suggestions?

Yes, thats exactly what I did.

Colin, I discovered my problem yesterday and setup a workaround. My dir
structure was like this

myProjectDir (not under CVS, but is the root of my project in IDEA)
myproject (is under cvs contains all cvs files)
src (all source code etc)

If you do commit project, it seems IDEA looks at the root of the project
(myProjectDir) and sees that it's not in CVS and says there is nothing
to commit.

When I changed to set myproject to be the root of the IDEA project,
hence it's the first directory you see under the project name in the
project page, then commit project works.

I haven't filed it as a bug, because the modules are not done yet, and
I'm assuming that once we can add modules to the project one by one,
this will be fixed. If not, I will file the bug after that.

Thanks Robert.

I cannot do the same as you since my CVS module starts at the package
hierarchy. This must be a bug.

Then make your CVS module the root of the project for now, then add the
other directories you need in the project too as other paths, and file a
bug :)

I have a recurring issue with CVS:

A project that was checked into CVS by Aurora that has been working for weeks has suddenly stopped working. I am continuously getting a "Unknown CVS error" when I try to add new files, refactor by rename or move, or even just trying to commit.

There are no other log files or exceptions being thrown.

Can anyone give me a suggestion to try?

You'll have to create the project with Aurora from the scratch and the problem should go away.
The project converter (IDEA 3.x -> Aurora) is coming.
